New anti-cellulite leggings have unexpected benefits

Lycra leggings

Lycra leggings

Let's get this straight: Lycra is not liposuction. Proskins' Slim Anti-Cellulite leggings (new in the U.S.) are purported to reduce saddlebags and unsightly dimpling via a miraculous Lycra-blend fabric impregnated with "microencapsulated" doses of caffeine, retinol, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera. Test runs did not, alas, massage my gluteus maximus into buns worthy of a Maxim model. But as quality compression leggings, they gave a sleek, smooth line, helped to prevent muscle fatigue and worked in multiple climates for athletic use and streetwear. British sizing, so buy one size larger than you think you'll need. $120 for full-length leggings, at proskinus.com
